    Hi Andy, and again thanks for your support on this forum!

    My problem is that the shortcodes (List and Styled boxes) both seem to mess up the location of my sidebar widget.

    In this post (no shortcodes) the widget is correctly displayed in the right sided column http://www.bonneviesvendsen.no/?p=457.

    In this post (List and Styled boxes shortcodes) the widget is moved down below the post. http://www.bonneviesvendsen.no/?p=229. The problem seems to be unaffected by the page settings with respects to content and box borders as well as widget width. But as soon as I delete the mentioned shortcodes the widget is proberly displayed.

    Any way around this so that I can use the shortcodes while still properly displaying the widget?

    Hi Martin,

    The only thing I can think of is that something on that page is closing a </div> tag which it isn't supposed to. What is the code you're using on the page?

    The post content html looks as follows, if that's what you're asking?:

    The cerebellum is traditionally thought of as a coordinator of balance and motor function. However, research now indicates that this vital part of the central nervous system is involved in several other important functions.

     

    This remarkable part of the central nervous system (CNS) is situated in the hindbrain and constitutes only 10% of the total CNS volume. Yet, it consists of more neurons than the remaining CNS all together. (1) A distinguished researcher on the topic of the cerebellum and its function is <a href="http://www.massgeneral.org/neurology/doctors/doctor.aspx?id=16489&quot; target="_blank">Jeremy D. Schmahmann</a>. His work has contributed largely to the literature drawn upon when learning more about the function of this intriguing organ. Schmamann has demonstrated how patients with cerebellar lesions also struggle with functions such as:

     

    &nbsp;

    <ul>

    <ul>

    <ul>

    <li>Planning</li>

    <li>Verbal expression</li>

    <li>Abstract reasoning</li>

    <li>Working memory</li>

    <li>Spatial cognition</li>

    <li>Linguistic processing</li>

    </ul>

    </ul>

    </ul>


     

    (2) (3) (4)

     

    The cerebellum has also been linked to depression. We know that it is involved in modulating the speed, rhythm and force of motor responses. With a lack of proper control of this values, movements will become dysmetric – in other words too big or too small. In 2004 Schmahmann presented a hypothesis called Dysmetria of Thoughs. It suggests that the cerebellum executes similar control of contical pathways involved in emotion and cognition. Following Schmamann's line of thought, a dysfunctional cerebellum could lead to dysmetria of thought. It is thought cognitive and emotional dysfunction can follow and also present as the primary symptoms of cerebellar lesions. (5)

     

    Despite this fascinating piece of information, disorders of depression and linguistics is still in the outskirts of the playing field of the average chiropractor, physiotherapist or manual therapist. Pain associated with neuromusculoskeletal conditions however, IS exactly our line of work. Interestingly, a strong association between pain and depression has been established. Not suprisingly, the cerebellum is now also linked to integration of pain stimulus. An article in Brain Research Reviews 2010 provides the following summary on cerebellum and pain:

     

    [styledbox type="shadow" ]

     

    <strong>Cerebellum and pain</strong>

    <ul>

    <li>The cerebellum is anatomically linked to efferent fibers from areas of the brain associated with cognition and pain modulation (dorsolateral prefrontal cortex). These cerebrocerebellar connections create a closes circuit, which indicates that the cerebellum plays a role in regulating the processing of pain stimulus (nociception). The cerebellum also receives fibers from other areas involved in the expression of pain and processing of nociception (zona incerta and periaqueductal gray).</li>

    <li>There is direct evidence that the cerebellum receives fibers that convey nociception.</li>

    <li>Pain signals can be regulated by electrical and pharmacological stimulation of different areas of the cerebellum.</li>

    <li>The cerebellum is thought to be involved in the perception of nociception (in other words how pain stimulus is experienced) However, this function is not yet clearly understood.</li>

    </ul>


    [/styledbox]

     

    The human body responds to pain stimulus in numerous ways. It might be that cerebellar activity under pain stimulus is related to other pain responses, such as motor defence mechanisms, expectations or emotional aspects of pain.

     

    The obvious question is: If electrical and pharmacological stimulus can modulate integration of nociception in the cerebellum, could a similar modulatory effect be achieved through somatosensory stimulation? Could a period of enhanced proprioceptive stimulus contribute to regulating the degree of experienced pain?

     

    And further, could altered cerebellar activity be the reason why practitioners observe improvements of depressive states in patients who receive treatment targeted towards musculoskeletal complaints?

     

    At this point one should be cautious not to wander down an all too familiar path. Such assumptions of causation based solely on basic research is an unsubstantiated conceptual leap of faith. In the words of Moulton et al:

     

    [styledbox type="shadow" ]<em>"Based on relatively scant evidence, we speculatively propose that the cerebellum is an integrator of multiple effector systems including affective processing, pain modulation, as well as sensorimotor processing…Clearly, more research in this domain is required to explicitly define the significance of nociceptive processing in the human cerebellum."</em>[/styledbox]

     

    In summary, I have attempted to highlight an interesting development in cerebellar research. In time, this direction might lead to new and effecive therapies for a range of conditions. However, further research is required. I believe this will be an interesting field to follow for anyone involved with pain patients and movement based therapies.[hozbreak]

    And here is the source code for the page if that makes a difference. Don't really know my way around CSS too well, so would be happy for any pointers.

    <p>The cerebellum is traditionally thought of as a coordinator of balance and motor function. However, research now indicates that this vital part of the central nervous system is involved in several other important functions.</p>
    <p>This remarkable part of the central nervous system (CNS) is situated in the hindbrain and constitutes only 10% of the total CNS volume. Yet, it consists of more neurons than the remaining CNS all together. (1) A distinguished researcher on the topic of the cerebellum and its function is <a href="http://www.massgeneral.org/neurology/doctors/doctor.aspx?id=16489" target="_blank">Jeremy D. Schmahmann</a>. His work has contributed largely to the literature drawn upon when learning more about the function of this intriguing organ. Schmamann has demonstrated how patients with cerebellar lesions also struggle with functions such as:</p>
    <p>&nbsp;</p>
    <ul>
    <ul><div class="list orb teal"></p>
    <ul>
    <li>Planning</li>
    <li>Verbal expression</li>
    <li>Abstract reasoning</li>
    <li>Working memory</li>
    <li>Spatial cognition</li>
    <li>Linguistic processing</li>
    </ul>
    </ul>
    </ul>
    <p></div></p>
    <p>(2) (3) (4)</p>
    <p>The cerebellum has also been linked to depression. We know that it is involved in modulating the speed, rhythm and force of motor responses. With a lack of proper control of this values, movements will become dysmetric &#8211; in other words too big or too small. In 2004 Schmahmann presented a hypothesis called Dysmetria of Thoughs. It suggests that the cerebellum executes similar control of contical pathways involved in emotion and cognition. Following Schmamann&#8217;s line of thought, a dysfunctional cerebellum could lead to dysmetria of thought. It is thought cognitive and emotional dysfunction can follow and also present as the primary symptoms of cerebellar lesions. (5)</p>
    <p>Despite this fascinating piece of information, disorders of depression and linguistics is still in the outskirts of the playing field of the average chiropractor, physiotherapist or manual therapist. Pain associated with neuromusculoskeletal conditions however, IS exactly our line of work. Interestingly, a strong association between pain and depression has been established. Not suprisingly, the cerebellum is now also linked to integration of pain stimulus. An article in Brain Research Reviews 2010 provides the following summary on cerebellum and pain:</p>
    <div class="styledbox shadow top clearfix" ><div class="styledbox shadow bottom"><div class="boxcontent shadow"></p>
    <p><strong>Cerebellum and pain</strong><div class="list check blue"></p>
    <ul>
    <li>The cerebellum is anatomically linked to efferent fibers from areas of the brain associated with cognition and pain modulation (dorsolateral prefrontal cortex). These cerebrocerebellar connections create a closes circuit, which indicates that the cerebellum plays a role in regulating the processing of pain stimulus (nociception). The cerebellum also receives fibers from other areas involved in the expression of pain and processing of nociception (zona incerta and periaqueductal gray).</li>
    <li>There is direct evidence that the cerebellum receives fibers that convey nociception.</li>
    <li>Pain signals can be regulated by electrical and pharmacological stimulation of different areas of the cerebellum.</li>
    <li>The cerebellum is thought to be involved in the perception of nociception (in other words how pain stimulus is experienced) However, this function is not yet clearly understood.</li>
    </ul>
    <p></div></div></div></div>
    <p>The human body responds to pain stimulus in numerous ways. It might be that cerebellar activity under pain stimulus is related to other pain responses, such as motor defence mechanisms, expectations or emotional aspects of pain.</p>
    <p>The obvious question is: If electrical and pharmacological stimulus can modulate integration of nociception in the cerebellum, could a similar modulatory effect be achieved through somatosensory stimulation? Could a period of enhanced proprioceptive stimulus contribute to regulating the degree of experienced pain?</p>
    <p>And further, could altered cerebellar activity be the reason why practitioners observe improvements of depressive states in patients who receive treatment targeted towards musculoskeletal complaints?</p>
    <p>At this point one should be cautious not to wander down an all too familiar path. Such assumptions of causation based solely on basic research is an unsubstantiated conceptual leap of faith. In the words of Moulton et al:</p>
    <div class="styledbox shadow top clearfix" ><div class="styledbox shadow bottom"><div class="boxcontent shadow"><em>&#8220;Based on relatively scant evidence, we speculatively propose that the cerebellum is an integrator of multiple effector systems including affective processing, pain modulation, as well as sensorimotor processing…Clearly, more research in this domain is required to explicitly define the significance of nociceptive processing in the human cerebellum.&#8221;</em></div></div></div>
    <p>In summary, I have attempted to highlight an interesting development in cerebellar research. In time, this direction might lead to new and effecive therapies for a range of conditions. However, further research is required. I believe this will be an interesting field to follow for anyone involved with pain patients and movement based therapies.<div class="hozbreak clearfix">&nbsp;</div></p>

    If you replace the content of that page with some text does it display fine? If it does then there is definitely something in the content, if not then something else is interfering.

    Fixed it. It was the coding for the first list that somehow messed it all up. Deleted and redid this one and then widget displayed where it should. Thanks again for your help!
